Excerpt from AP video after Ambassador Huntman using his first public engagement to confirm that President Barack Obama would be visiting China for the first time in November.
AMBASSADOR HUNTSMAN: There is much happening this year in U.S.-China relations, we're all very mindful of that. We have the 30th anniversary of the U.S.-China relationship, we have of course the 60th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China, we have President Obama who is going to be visiting in the middle of November and so I am here to tell you that by the end of the year, we should be in better shape than ever before between the United States and China to be able to anticipate a positive tomorrow.
